My husband and I picked this seat because of the good safety ratings and excellent value. Safety was our number one concern when buying a car seat. Looks, comfort, cost, and ease of use were all second.

In our 9 months of use so far, the Graco Snugride has been an easy adjustment. My husband and I were both unfamiliar with infant seats and the Snugride proved to have an easy learning curve during car installation as well as when securing an infant in the carrier. We both mastered the skill within a few tries. Car installation is easy with the LATCH system and even easier when utilizing the seat belt traps when the LATCH system is not available. It was not a huge headache as everyone used to make car seat installation to be.
This car seat is very basic with no frills. The only "extra" is the canopy which is necessary to avoid direct sunlight on sensitive eyes.
We have not been in any car accident so I am not able to give first experience regard this aspect. But as I stated above, Graco Snugride had some excellent safety reviews on various sites across the internet.
There are only a few drawbacks. One, the fabric seat was soiled with poop and needed to be washed so I threw it in the washing machine on cold and tumble dry low. It held up but the padding on the back of the fabric was noticeable deteriorating. I would not feel comfortable washing it a second time in the washer. Granted, I didn't read the cleaning instructions, but I would assume it would read spot clean only.
My second issue is the awkwardness of using the carrying handle with baby inside. It puts your arm in an uncomfortable position. Not recommended to carry long distances.
However, these issues are only minor and would not deter me from buying this product again or recommending it to a friend.
